Brass bonanza

I've done it again: Fallen for a new item and bought way too much!

A local antique store has boxes and boxes and boxes of brass charms, filigree, and motifs. A few weeks ago, I went over there, carefully rummaged through the boxes, and bought forty of them; today I went back and bought 108. Let's be realistic, shall we? What are the chances of me actually using 148 brass bits? Erm, not good. Not good at all.

But they were so inexpensive, and so cool, and I couldn't bear to put any of them back. I knew I'd miss them if I did. Maybe I'll be able to use them all.

I have good genes; I might live that long.
